Year 10 Learning

In year 10, students continue their journey to becoming expert readers, writers and speakers. Throughout year 10, students will study two core literature texts (Journey’s End and Frankenstein) along with a range of poems from the Conflict anthology. As well as this, students will shape their craft at creating effective narratives, writing transactionally and in performing speeches. Oracy is embedded as part of teaching and learning, so opportunities throughout the year are provided for students to present independent, develop their discussion skills and to hold purposeful and focused debates.
